Hello There!

Eight years ago, when we started this magazine, people asked, "Why start a print magazine?" It's a good question!

It's because we love regional magazines and believe there's nothing better than celebrating the place where you live through stories and photographs. And because we love the South Coast and we love telling the stories of the South Coast!

We hope you've had a chance to see our print magazine. If you haven't and you'd like to take a peek, email me at [email protected] & we'll send you a complimentary copy of the next issue so you can decide whether you'd like to join us as a subscriber.



Publisher, South Coast Almanac

Our magazine explores the people and places of the South Coast MA and RI region.

It’s as simple as that.

From Little Compton to Onset & Buzzards Bay, we’re all about the South Coast. Because we’re passionate about this area. We delve into fascinating people, homes, food & restaurants, history, art, sailing & recreation and hidden places. We then reflect it back in the pages of our print issues filled with stories by local writers, photographers and designers that we hope capture a sense of this wonderful place.

We’re hard at work planning for our 2024 issues now. Drop us a line at [email protected] and let us know what you liked in our current issue and/or what you’d like to see more of. Sign up for the digital version of our magazine to get regular email updates and be in the know for monthly specials and offers, like special meet-ups and discounts on local events.

Also, a little shameless plug — we’d love it if you became a subscriber (click here for that!). Because we assume you love the South Coast too (why else would you be here!) and by subscribing, you directly support all these stories that celebrate all that is special here,
